hello utonian.


while we are missing gaborik, it should not cripple the entire team. after all, wouldn't letting one player be our greatest asset go against everything lemaire wants from the wild?

Yep.

I missed the game due to homework (still unfinished) so I can't offer any commentary.

It's like last season all over again. So, can you even blame coaching since the same problems are happening? I don't think so.

Something is fundamentally wrong with the Avs and I'm not seeing what it is. What I do know is Lacroix is trying to gloss over it with Kariya and Selanne, something I have been grumbling about since this last summer. I know things take awhile to click--but that doesn't explain the lack of production from Forsberg, Tanguay or Hejduk. And the third and fourth line still isn't kicking in the needed goals.

I honestly think Lacroix expected the opposition to be so dazzled by his new line-up that they'd just roll over and lose. Instead, it's having the opposite effect--the rest of the NHL is getting "Are you intimidated? How will you beat the Avs?" And that's having this great, rallying effect! You're being told your team can't compare...so they're doing what any hockey club with any pride in itself would do, and rallying and kicking our ass. I applaud them.

LOL, well, I didn't get close to finishing...I fell asleep. So I might as well have just watched the game!

Sometimes, slacking just *is* the logical choice...

yay! i made a logical decision!

oh wait...you said 'sometimes'....

what i should do is go to sleep now so i don't fall asleep (or spend the majority of my day tomorrow thinking about going to sleep) at points in the day tomorrow where i could be doing something productive.

Looks like somebody has a case of I need a goaltender...



Fundamentally wrong thing about the Avs? Same thing I said before the season started... they're top heavy, with forwards copping out on their defensive obligations. Take a look at all the Avs standing around during the Boston goals. No one is challenging for the puck. A possession type game philosophy is great, but it doesn't work to well if you don't have la rondelle to work with.

Is this a coaching flaw? Possibly. Colorado needs to realize that if they want to play a full season with a goaltender who hasn't done the 60-70 starts before, they'll need to engage opposing teams away from the puck... because believe me, once the other clubs see the potency of the avalanche attack and powerplay, they will stay out of the box and play an even more regimented trap game... taking the possession away from the Avs, and obviously the scoring chances...

So, in summary... I know mikey likes those... super offensive teams like Colorado don't translate well to the present day league. They could benefit more from role players, instead of stacking themselves with scoring masters.

I agree with both of you...I think I said that before also, that there's no one willing to get gritty and dirty, and grab that puck.

I've said it before and it seems to be coming true, was trading Deadmarsh was the beginning of the end. Lacroix began valuing big names (especially in defense) and scoring masters over toughness and grit.

The Drury trade was also a problem--the guy was great in the clutch...now our offense just seems to be shutting down in the tenser moments.

It's almost embarassing to be a leafs fan right now.....Pat Quinn needs to step down as coach.

Avs dealt Battaglia (yay!) for Konowalchuk.

They also gave up rights to Jonas Johansson, who seemed really promising. (Again, Lacroix hits the farm team and it will probably be a mistake.)

Kariya out with a sprained wrist--what's with the Avs press releases and their fondness for using "indefinitely"? It's a sprained wrist, not a broken one. Unless there's something they're not telling. (Highly likely, as we all know.)
